FM 5-20B War Department Field Manual, Corps of Engineers, Camouflage of Vehicles 1944-04-02
"Knowledge of the principles of camouflage is as important to the vehicle driver as proper vehicle maintenance. A badly concealed vehicle can draw a bombing or strafing attack, which is even more crippling than a poor maintenance job. In either case, the result is a lost vehicle. In the case of poor camouflage, it may mean much more -enemy discovery of a unit, disclosure of an important tactical plan, or complete destruction of installations. Camouflage of vehicles depends not only on concealing vehicles themselves but equally on preventing and concealing their tracks. Methods of solving these two problems are covered in this book. Contents include enemy aerial and ground observation, tracks, siting, dispersion, shine, shadows, natural materials, vehicle painting, artificial materials, use of nets, digging in, and snow camouflage."
